When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Two mutant brothers, Logan and Victor, born 200 years ago, suffer childhood trauma and have only each other to depend on. Basically, they're fighters and killers, living from war to war through U.S. history. In modern times, a U.S. colonel, Stryker, recruits them and other mutants as commandos. Logan quits and becomes a logger, falling in love with a local teacher. When Logan refuses to rejoin Stryker's crew, the colonel sends the murderous Victor. Logan now wants revenge. Written by
The characters depicted in this movie are the result of 3 generations of X-Men creators - Wolverine and Sabretooth were created by Len Wein & Johnny Romita and Chris Claremont & John Byrne respectively back in the '70's; Deadpool is a product of Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld's work on the title during the '90's, and; John Wraith was created by Larry Hama in the '90's, and the Weapon X program was first introduced into X-men by Barry Windsor-Smith in his classic story "Weapon X", originally published in Marvel Comics Presents #72-84 from 1980's. In addition, characters created by Stan Lee make cameo appearances toward the end. See more »
(at around 15 mins) In the jungle scene where Sabertooth and Wolverine begin to get at odds you can see the fog machines shooting out mist in spurts. At one point you can actually see the pipe and nozzle. See more »
I have no idea as to why people bash Wolverine. I think its an extremely well made, highly entertaining movie with great acting and a fitting storyline. Its also pretty dark and uncompromising in many scenes.
The fight scenes are brutal and intense which makes them really awesome.
I was actually surprised by some of the plot twists. Great.
The opening title sequence should win some kind of award. Gave me goose bumps. The editing is perfect.
Only complaint is the few plot holes towards the X-men trilogy.
